Why invest in gold and silver bullions?

There are several reasons why invest in physical gold and silver bullions. Most people buy precious metals to possess a financial asset that never loses its value. For this reason, gold and silver have been used as currency by many civilizations. Gold, for example, has been valued by different cultures around the world for over 5000 years. Gold has been used for multiple purposes and not only as a payment instrument. A big amount of the gold in use today is being carried around by people as jewellery. There is gold even in the device you are reading this text from.
Furthermore, investing in gold or silver can be a hedging tool against crises. This is because gold price moves differently than, for example, bonds or stocks.

What is investment gold?

Investment gold is actually a legal term in the UK.

According to HMRC investment gold is either:

(a) gold of a purity not less than 995 thousandths that is in the form of a bar, or a wafer, of a weight accepted by the bullion markets

(b) a gold coin minted after 1800 that is:

  • of a purity of not less than 900 thousandths
  • or has been, legal tender in its country of origin
  • of a description of coin that is normally sold at a price that does not exceed 180 per cent of the open market value of the gold contained in the coin

The reason why this is important is that investment gold is exempt from VAT which makes it an attractive investment product.

Which investment product should I choose?

Investment bullions can typically be divided into 2 categories: investment bars and investment coins. 

One very common question people come up with prior to their investment is which products should be purchased. We will try to help you a bit. There are three important things to keep in mind when choosing the right investment product.

These are:

  1. the lowest price per gram,
  2. the traceability of the product globally,
  3. the different sizes and values of the product.

In general, the largest products have the lowest margins. So, it’s recommended to buy a larger amount of gold once than a small amount of gold often. Meaning, that we recommend buying a 10g Gold Bullion Bar once, rather than 1g Gold Bullions ten times. 

Following products have the lowest price per gram. They are among the most reputable products that are accepted internationally by banks, investors or other gold traders:

Now you might have an answer to your question about which and how investment products should be chosen.
